    My name is Lisa & I am English. I have lived in a property in a small medieval village, in northern Tuscany for several years. I have several odd jobs around the house, including cleaning & painting, as well as other various DIY projects & there’s a lot of outdoor work too, as I have a very large garden, which needs attention

    The house is situated on the border of a national park in the apuan alps. Although I have lived in Italy several years I still don't speak Italian very well so I hope we could both benefit from your stay If you are learning English/Italian.

  • Accommodation


    My house is a two bedroom house with a large garden. It is still in the process of being renovated so although the bathroom is functional, it is dated.
    I don’t have central heating, or cooking facilities yet!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    The nearest airport to me Is Pisa so of course there is the leaning tower of Pisa to see! On the way up from Pisa to the house there are many places to stop off at along the coast such as Viareggio, Versilia, Lerici, Portovenere & of course the cinque terre, which is nice to do by boat. The nearest beach is marinella which is about 40 mins away by car. There are also lots of Hiking trails available in the local area. The train station is about a 20 minute walk away & I also have an old mountain bike for getting around on.
